George Washington University

Program Summary

A number of fellowships are offered:
1)Candidates from Developing Asian Nations
Three fellowships to support study during the 2002-2003 academic year will be awarded to mid-career professionals from developing Asian nations. Fellows will have one year to complete the Master of International Policy and Practice (M.I.P.P.) program at The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs.

2)Candidates from Developed Asian Nations
One fellowship to support study during the 2002-2003 academic year will be awarded to a mid-career professional from a developed Asian nation. The fellow will have one year to complete the Master of International Policy and Practice (M.I.P.P.) program at The George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs.

The M.I.P.P. is a 27 credit hour degree program for mid-career professionals. It prepares international affairs professionals to understand complex global trends, analyze and forecast international events, and think and plan strategically in a global environment. M.I.P.P. candidates take three core courses: one in international politics, one in international economics, and one exclusive seminar that engages participants in discussions with prominent guest speakers from international business, the policy community, the international media, and the nonprofit sector. Remaining coursework is tailored to participants' individual needs. M.I.P.P. candidates can concentrate on a wide range of related subjects including international business, economics, politics, development, security policy, or science and technology policy. M.I.P.P. candidates may also choose to study the dynamics of a particular region, such as Latin America or Asia, or the international aspects of U.S. policy.

Candidates from both developing and developed Asian nations must be mid-career professionals. Candidates from developed Asian nations must have a B.A. plus either eight years of professional work experience or an advanced degree to be eligible.
